11 Tweets From Emily Bett Rickards That Prove The 'Arrow' Star Is Even More Entertaining Than Felicity Smoak
It's true that actors are not their characters, but there are some actors who share certain traits and qualities with their roles. Take Arrow star Emily Bett Rickards who plays Felicity Smoak. Sure, Rickards probably doesn’t stop a major city from imminent disaster every week with her computer prowess, but thankfully, she does have Felicity’s endearing wit in spades. And, that’s what really matters here, right? Right.
In fact, the actress has been asked if she’s anything like her character before. In an interview with PopSugar, Rickards admitted that she identifies with Felicity on an “emotional level,” that they’re both “hand talkers,” and that Miss Smoak has also made her “more awkward in [her] daily life.” I personally think it’s a good awkward. Who wants to be socially adept, anyway? Abounding awkwardness provides us with some of life’s greatest, most shareable stories (I would know).
Speaking of entertaining stories, if you haven’t yet checked out Rickards' Twitter account, you should. Twitter can be a dismally cliché place, but her brand of musings really raise the bar. Here are 11 instances where Emily Bett Rickards took to the social media platform and proved she’s just as entertaining as Felicity Smoak.
